This "Meal" (and I use the term loosely) is often eaten when someone thinks that they are being cultural by eating "japanese food".
The Japanese dispise California rolls because they are not considered traditional sushi, or even sushi at all... they are an invention to try and make people who don't like sushi "like sushi"...
"Hey Zansuki, I just shit in his california rolls!"
"SO DESUKA?? SUGEI!!"
1)sushi ordered in Japanese restaurants by white people or virgin sushi eaters
2)contains imitation crab meat, avacado, mayo, cucumber, seasame seeds, dried seaweed, wrapped inside white rice (no raw fish)
yuppie: "order some california rolls, it's like as cool as yoga and the other asian crap i think i know about to appear to be cultured and sophisticated when all i'm doing is following some stupid trend started by celebrities."
The California Roller slows down slightly while rolling through an intersection as an acknowledgement that the local Department of Public Safety has gone to the expense and trouble of placing a traffic control sign or blinking red light there.
you're still moving, so its faster than racing up to it and then stopping. this is also great when you're poor and can't afford fuel to keep accelerating from zero.
if you're good you can stay in second or third gear
*slows down slightly*
no sweat, we'll california roll it
